Thanks for the reply Jeff.
Take a look at this page.

https://earlychurchtexts.com/public/twocolumns_sampletext/archivelinktest.html

The links to Google Books work as expected.
The links to archive.org do not.
I hope that this issue can be resolved.

Thanks - AndyECT

ok i see the issue. the new bookreader uses a different url schema than the old one. i'll file this as a bug. i can't promise there will be an easy or quick fix. it may require using new urls on your site. i'll update you if i learn more.

Thanks for the response.
Yes, it would be good if there was a simple fix!
Would the issue be resolved if the links conformed to the different url schema?
I see that maybe now
https://archive.org/stream/chrysostom_pauline_homilies_field_vol_5#page/n217/mode/1up
has become
https://archive.org/details/chrysostom_pauline_homilies_field_vol_5/page/n217

Would updating the links solve the problem?
Or is it possible to include something which would revert to the old archive.org version!?

That is brilliant. Many thanks.
What would you recommend as the best url format for links like this that I create in the future?

use the link that now appears on archive.org for whatever page you are specifying. there was some change in the URL schema recently for the bookreader.

That sounds simple enough! Thank you.
Is there a way (through the link) of getting the page to open "toggled full screen" and "one page", or does that now have to be done through the on screen controls?

at this point it is through screen controls.
